    The holidays are here. 
    And that means going home and visiting the family. And that means opening up the photo album and seeing some blasts from the past.
    In honor of that nostalgic feeling, we're taking a look back at our favorite gadgets from the 1990s.
    We will always celebrate the 1990s as the time when the World Wide Web really started changing our lives. 
    Back then, our flannel was loose, our jeans were high-waisted, and our tech gadgets were cool. 
    Here are some techie gizmos and toys that we miss dearly.After watching "Home Alone 2," everyone wanted a Talkboy. This little gadget let you record and playback whatever you wanted, plus speed up or slow down recordings to make yourself sound ridiculous.

    The Sega Genesis, which came bundled with Sonic the Hedgehog, was technically released in the U.S. in 1988 but didn't start really winning our hearts until the '90s.
    It didn't matter that your Sony Discman would skip despite its anti-shock protection, you loved it all the same.
    Sure, we forgot to feed them occasionally, but there was no digital pet better than a Tamagotchi (sorry Nano Pets).
    (Okay, so we've heard that Tamagotchis are coming back, but there's no way that the new version will be as good as the original.)
